[ECOS] JFFS2, for Redboot only?

Looking through the ECOS code and looking through the archivesÂ


It seems to use JFFS2 I must load up an initial JFFS2 via redboot?

If the flash is already clear canÂ’t JFFS2 simply use it?

Most importantly.  A quick test of JFFS2 and it seems that during write the
flash is never unlocked.
I did a grep for flash_unlock and it only showed up in fis_unlock.  AFAIK,
that is a Redboot interface.

SoÂ
.

Does this mean JFFS2 expects an unlocked flash and the unlocking typically
comes from Redboot?

Am I missing something?   A resource on the net?
